About

Hi my name's mel and i'm a fourth year med student - and i procrastinate by sewing. Seriously though i tell myself its practice so i can be kick ass at suturing...one day a long way into the future. I'm a massive hoarder of material - and have more than i could ever possibly need at one time but insist on buying more - its almost as bad as this obsession i have with covering my sewing with clear vinyl (like an little old lady). By the end of this year I'm planning on going to japan with my boyfriend and dragging him to cute material places and making him lug it around. ><

Hi Dreamchaser,

I haven't read that particular book by Melina Marchetta but I have read her other books such as Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca. Looking for Alibrandi is a very popular book for year 8 English classes, I think it was even on my book list once. So not such a small world after all!

do you by any chance read a lot and have happened 2 read Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta?, i love that book it was written by an Australian and the setting is in Australlia, its a small world but an unknown book, unlikely you've read it but it was worth a shot.

Hi Mel, you're very welcome,
must laugh of your covering up story, i do that too with my sewing machine that's saving him from too much dust.
so it's super okay to do that, not a old lady think.LOL
the sewing machines are soooo expensive and taking care will help to let them do much longer their job.
on the art academy we had those covers too, so it was only normal to make one for my own too.
the covering of couch and chairs that's more a funny vintage lady think. the dutch were commen too with those issues
have read that during the 1800 there were for the first time some carpets but only for the rich people and to be aconomic they corvered it up too with an other carpet.LOL
hey you're a very well neat sewer awesome. see more of you t hat i like.
hey have an awesome fun week;-D

Just wanted to say - I love your how to's! The pictures and instructions are so well explained that when I eventually get some spare time I will have to give them a go!

Good luck with your studies! I graduated from Med School in the UK last year - its hard work but fun and rewarding when you eventually get there!
